The round brilliant cut diamond has been the most popular diamond shape among consumers for centuries now and is the crowned queen among all other diamond shapes. Many people love the round brilliant cut diamond because it gives the brightest sparkle from within.
What makes it brilliant?
A diamond with the perfect proportions is chosen for the round (brilliant) cut, because if the proportions are not correct the light will not refract properly and the diamond will appear dull. The diamond is then cut with perfect symmetry, so that the light is reflected equally from all the facets within.

It is valued as being timeless, classy and hence people believe it is a great choice for auspicious occasions like engagements, matrimony, anniversaries and other celebrations of life. The modern designers now create many creative and unique pieces with a round cut diamond as the center piece in stunning styles that are in line with present trends and styles.
